A case manager will complete a formal assessment of your condition and determine if your care needs can be managed with additional home and community resources or whether you require round-the-clock nursing care.
If you have been in hospital, once you return home and have had a chance to recover a bit longer, you can be reassessed in your normal surroundings, which will give us the best understanding of your care needs.
If the case manager determines you can be supported at home safely, they will work with you and your family to provide appropriate home supports to assist with all the health-related activities of daily living.
If your case manager determines you cannot be supported at home, a panel of experts will determine if you are eligible for subsidized residential care.
If you are eligible for residential care because you need access to round-the-clock medical care, you will be asked to choose the community in which you would like to live. You will be offered a bed that matches your specific care needs. You may be placed on a waitlist until a suitable bed becomes available.
